Choosing Accessories and Color Schemes to Relax in Your Bathroom

When choosing bathroom accessories and color schemes for a relaxing bathroom, consider the style, patterns, and designs you want to use. For instance, a child’s bathroom will be more bright, colorful and cheerful than a guest bath, which may need fancy towels, a sink skirt, special soaps, and decorative shower curtain. Basically, consider who the bathroom is for.

A master bathroom may include such things as monogrammed towels, fringed rugs, potpourri, towel displays, decorative soaps in a pretty dish, and bath oils. When making these decisions, consider your favorite style. You can choose from traditional, contemporary, country, or even Victorian. Once you have made your choice, it’s time to start going in the direction of accessorizing in that style.

A rustic bathroom can be quite lovely and relaxing. Wooden accessories such as baskets, birdhouses with a touch of the outdoors added through live plants and vines. You can easily find shower curtains to match this look. Or you may want a bath that reminds you of an aquarium. A very popular bathroom accessory today is the fish toilet seat. Matching curtains and shower curtains are also available.

Once you have decided on your favorite style, think about the colors and patterns you want. Coordinate the colors and patterns with the rest of the bathroom fixtures with the accessories you choose. Consider the whole look when you’re selecting these important items.

For bathrooms with porcelain sinks, tubs, and toilets, try using either darker shades or brighter colors to accent the bathroom. Add some greens to the room with yellow accents. Match these colors with everything else.

It’s not that hard to find the best color schemes. You can start by choosing neutral colors and adding darker shades, strong colors, and brilliant ones. Your patterns may even have pastel colors in them. If you’re not sure which ones are best for you, places such as Home Depot have people to help guide you.

For attractive storage, add some large wicker baskets to store everything from fresh towels and washcloths, to bath items and reading material. In addition, if you’re on a budget, you can also check places such as Family Dollar to find accessories on a dime.
